The group "Crystals and Quantum State Dynamics" (www.cqsd.fr) at IRCP (Chimie ParisTech/CNRS/PSL University), led by Dr. Philippe Goldner, is internationally recognized for developing rare earth doped crystals for applications in quantum technologies. These materials show unique properties in the solid-state in terms of long optical and spin coherence lifetimes, and are thus among the most promising materials for building light-matter interfaces at the quantum level. These systems raise a strong interest in a variety of quantum technologies, like quantum communications, processing and microwave to optics transduction. To meet the stringent demands of these applications, we develop rare earth doped materials in the form of bulk single crystals, nanoparticles as well as thin films thanks to extensive capabilities in material growth and processing, together with optical and spin quantum state characterization. In these innovative quantum grade crystals, we investigate methods and protocols to further control quantum states and use them for a broad range of technologies. More recently, we have also initiated activities surrounding the creation and spectroscopic characterization of color centers in diamond that constitute an alternative and complementary material system for quantum technologies.
This 2-year plus potential extension post-doctoral contract is funded through the ERC Advanced Grant project "RareDiamond" which aims at demonstrating new functionalities in hybrid materials combining color centers in diamond and rare earth ions. This contract is oriented towards the development of spin-photon quantum interfaces. The expected starting date is January 2022.
- development of experiments in coherent optical and microwave spectroscopy at low temperatures
- quantum states characterization
- modeling of interactions within hybrid materials
- development of spin-photon interfaces
The candidates should have a strong interest and background in material science or condensed matter physics, including skills in optical or microwave spectroscopy. An established experience in experimental quantum physics is also required.
This project will take place at IRCP (Institut de Recherche de Chimie Paris), a joint CNRS/Chimie ParisTech research unit. IRCP is one of the main chemical institutes in the Paris region and has about 200 people. It is located in Paris in the 5th district within Chimie ParisTech, a graduate school member of the PSL University. This project includes a collaboration with the Laboratoire des Sciences des Procédés et des Matériaux (CNRS/Université Sorbonne Paris Nord) which has great expertise in diamond growth for quantum technologies.
